Christita's story

This is Christita, 48 years old and a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is a mother to her children and manages her household while operating her business, a food stall. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her family's everyday expenses.

Christita sells native cakes and pastries, which she mostly makes from sticky rice, in her community. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a loan of 50,000 PHP. She will use the loan to buy more raw ingredients and products for her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Christita dreams of being able to give her children a good life through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay Micro Finance loans.
